READY OR NOT;

THEY SAID THEY COULDN'T GO.
THEY HAD A HOUSE TO BUY.
IT WAS THEIR DREAM HOUSE, AND THEY WANTED TO ENJOY IT,
FOR JUST A FEW YEARS FIRST.
SO THEY WAITED...
BUT THE OLD JUNGLE GRANDMA DIDN'T.
SHE GREW DEAF AND BLIND AND EVENTUALLY DIED.
SHE NEVER HEARD THE GOOD NEWS.
NO ONE WENT TO TELL.
SHE JUST DIED AND WENT TO HELL
FOREVER...
HE SAID HE COULDN'T GO.
HE'D STUDIED LONG FOR HIS DEGREE.
IT ONLY MADE GOOD SENSE TO TEACH AT THE UNIVERSITY
TO THOSE WHO WOULD APPRECIATE HIS KNOWLEDGE,
AT LEAST FOR A FEW YEARS.
SO HE WAITED...
BUT THE YOUNG INDIAN MAN DIDN'T.
WHILE OUT HUNTING HONEY IN TREES, HE FELL, HIT HIS HEAD, LINGERED SHORTLY,
AND DIED. HE NEVER HEARD THE GOOD NEWS.
NO ONE WENT TO TELL.
HE JUST DIED AND WENT TO HELL
FOREVER...
SHE SAID SHE COULDN'T GO.
SHE'D ALWAYS WANTED TO GROW BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS
AND NOW WAS HER CHANCE.
SURELY GOD WANTED HER TO HAVE THIS DESIRE FULFILLED.
SHE'D JUST STAY A FEW YEARS TO ENJOY IT.
SO SHE WAITED...
BUT THE CHILD BRIDE IN THE FOREIGN LAND DIDN'T.
HER DRUNKEN HUSBAND BEAT HER TO DEATH
IN A RAGING FIT. SO SHE DIED.
SHE NEVER HEARD THE GOOD NEWS.
NO ONE WENT TO TELL.
SHE JUST DIED AND WENT TO HELL.
FOREVER...
THEY SAID THEY COULDN'T GO.
THEIR CHILDREN WERE YOUNG AND FULL OF LIFE.
SURELY IT WOULDN'T BE RIGHT OR FAIR TO TAKE THEM OVERSEAS
AND DEPRIVE THEM OF A NORMAL CHILDHOOD.
THEY COULD ALWAYS GO LATER.
SO THEY WAITED...
BUT THE LITTLE GIRL WHO
WANDERED INTO THE JUNGLE DIDN'T.
A HUNGRY TIGER CAUGHT HER AND IT WAS TOO LATE. SHE DIED.
SHE NEVER HEARD THE GOOD NEWS.
NO ONE EVER WENT TO TELL.
SHE JUST DIED AND WENT TO HELL.
FOREVER...
HE SAID HE COULDN'T GO.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE WASN'T HIS THING.
HE'D ONLY MAKE A FOOL OF HIMSELF AND BE LAUGHED AT.
HE'D WORK ON HIS SELF CONFIDENCE
AND MAYBE FEEL CALLED LATER.
SO HE WAITED...
BUT THE OLD WITCH DOCTOR DIDN'T.
WHILE TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE SPIRITS
HE GOT INTO SUCH A STATE HE HAD A HEART ATTACK AND DIED.
HE NEVER HEARD THE GOOD NEWS.
NO ONE WENT TO TELL.
HE JUST DIED AND WENT TO HELL
FOREVER...
SHE SAID SHE COULDN'T GO.
IT WOULDN'T BE RIGHT TO TAKE THE CHILDREN SO
FAR AWAY FROM THEIR GRANDPARENTS.
AND SHE COULDN'T BEAR NOT SEEING HER FOLKS REGULARLY.
MAYBE LATER WHEN THE KIDS WERE GROWN.
SO SHE WAITED...
BUT THE PREGNANT TRIBAL WOMAN DIDN'T.
A POISONOUS SNAKE BIT HER AND IN MINUTES
SHE DIED. SHE NEVER HEARD THE GOOD NEWS.
NO ONE WENT TO TELL.
SHE JUST DIED AND WENT TO HELL
FOREVER...
WHAT IF GOD HAD NOT SO LOVED US UNTIL HE GAVE HIS ALL?
WHAT IF JESUS HAD BEEN UNWILLING TO GIVE HIS LIFE - OUR ONLY HOPE?!?
YOU AND I WOULD JUST BE DOOMED TO DIE
AND GO TO HELL
FOREVER.....
